New AMD F1 Socket Cooler Compatiblility

I was looking at buying a aftermarket cpu cooler for an F1 socket. Are the current AM3 coolers compatible with the new FM1?

  1. Well the current processors are compatible with the new socket boards. Thus the coolers should also be compatible.
  2. Any AM2/AM2+/AM3/AM3+ cooler should work just fine.

    WTF? No. You can't put an AM3 CPU into an FM1 board.

    Sorry for my mistake. Misunderstood it with the 990FX board. Extremely sorry.
